Scaleo P problems.

Postby danielf » Sat Sep 10, 2005 23:23

Hi there.<BR>I have a Scaleo P pc which is a P4 HT 3.2GHZ, 512MB DDR ram and 160GB hard drive.<P>I was running FreeBSD and had a few unexplained reboots and I then changed it over to WinXP as I was planning to do. When these unexplaiend reboots happened sometimes even trying to turn the computer back on didn't work, it would power up literally for a few seconds then die again.<P>I then changed over to XP and the same thing is happening so I seeked some support and download Speedfan which brough this up about the PC: <A HREF="http://www.skyinternet.co.uk/~dan/temp.JPG" TARGET=_blank>http://www.skyinternet.co.uk/~dan/temp.JPG</A> <P>as you can see, the Hard drive is completely overheating, the 12V is completely wrong, and it's only recognising one fan even though there's the main PSU one and the processor one.<P>I then seeked more help and got told to update my BIOS in case that was a problem; did so with no problems but the exact same.<P>To rule out a sensor problem on the hard drive I put in another hard drive, an 80GB seagate barracuda in the Fujistu PC to the EXACT same problem.<P>I downloaded HD Tune and that reported the same overheating.<P>What do you suggest I do? Return it? I only got the PC this year from PC World in the UK. How do I go about returning it? Really disappointed. Image<P>Thanks!

Just emailed PC world about returning it. Hopefully I can get a replacement but a different make/machine as I don't want this to happen again. Image
